Although it was an open secret, today we can confirm that Samsung will extend update support to seven years, but only for the Galaxy S24 and later phones.

This is not the first time we’ve heard that the new Samsung phones would come with a deep revision of their update policy. This makes sense in part because Google already offers seven years with its new Pixels, so not being at that level detracts points from the Korean company.
So, today we can confirm that the new Galaxy family will have no less than seven years of Android updates, meaning it will have the following seven versions of the Google operating system. Quite a milestone and a powerful commitment by the Koreans.
All that glitters is not gold, and the S23, the Z Fold, and a few more phones are left out
Unfortunately, this policy will start with the new S24 series, so phones like the Galaxy S23, S23+, S23 Ultra, S23 FE, Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, and Galaxy Tab S9 are left out for now. It’s unclear if the company will expand support; it seems unlikely given the number of devices they would have to support that were not conceived for this.
Fortunately, what we do know is that at least these phones, which still have five years of updates, will have access to One UI 6.1. My colleague Marta has been covering everything in detail.
